Battery life and Connectivity

Since few to any physical changes have been made from the Bold 9700, it shouldn't come as no surprise that an exact replica of the 1500mAh battery lives inside the Bold 9780. Still, being on the large side for most modern smartphones, you won't hear any complaints from us regarding this aspect since it really shows in the battery life. If you use the phone in a very light manner, it should normally reach four or five days with a single charge. But of course, no BlackBerry owner will use it in a light manner so the good news is that the battery should last you easily for a day and a half of serious fooling around. Sure, it may not seem much, but trust us, we fooled around pretty much with it and we think it has a decent enough autonomy.

Let's talk a little about the connectivity. Wi-Fi and 3G handle data duties on the Blackberry Bold 9780. The Bluetooth 2.1 capabilities of the phone can be accessed from the Home screen as well as the first two features we mentioned. The GPS is very accurate and it offers plenty of speed in Google Maps. A2DP audio steaming as well as mono/stereo headsets are easily supported. When you connect to PC through the micro-USB, it shall take you into the realm of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, enabling you to back up your device and also sync options for Notes, Contacts and Calendar. Also with great ease, you can bring music across and tie into your iTunes playlists which enables you to selectively import any song you might want. When browsing tabs, the responsiveness is all over the place. You can't really put your finger on it, because sometimes you have to wait a couple of seconds for the command to be picked up, while other times it would instantly do whatever you want it too. Navigating a page using a track-pad seems slightly old-school these days, but we can't complain about serviceable aspect in the end.
